"At the banquet table of life there are no reserved seats. You get what you can take, and you keep what you can hold. If you can't take anything, you won't get anything; and if you can't hold anything, you won't keep anything. And you can't take anything without organization."  

- A. Philip Randolph

"Belief works this way. Belief, the "I'm-postive-I-can" attitude, that generates the power, skill, and energy needed to do. When you believe I-can-do-it, the how-to-do-it develops.

Belief in great results is the driving force, the power behind all great books, plays, scientific discoveries. Belief in success is behind every successful business, church, and political organization. Belief in success is the one basic, absolutely essential ingredient of successful people.

A person is a product of his own thoughts. Believe Big. Adjust your thermostat forward. Launch your success offensive with honest, sincere, belief that you can succeed. Believe big and grow big.

Think success, don't think failure. Remind yourself regularly that you are better than you think you are. Believe big. The size of your success is determined by the size of your belief."

- The Magic of Thinking Big, David J. Schwartz

    Food For Thought

    • Holy Bible: New American Standard Bible (NASB)
      by The Lockman Foundation

      The more you read and re-read it, the more annoyed you become by critics who obviously have not read it.  The amount of wisdom contained in it is without comparison.  Yes its about fire and brimstone. Yes its about love. And yet, it is so much more. A favorite, Matthew Chapter 7: "Beware of false prophets ... you will know them by their fruit."  Think about a bad a personal experience with someone... following that Chapter surely would have saved you much anguish.  Btw, each Book is much easier to grasp and understand with a little setup:

    • Why Should White Guys Have All the Fun?: How Reginald Lewis Created a Billion-Dollar Business Empire
      by Reginald F. Lewis, Blair S. Walker

      You ever wonder how some people are supposedly an overnight success? Well Reginald Lewis's story clearly shows you that it is not always about being born on third base.  His story is the personification of hustle and a near complete quieter of excuses. While everyone understandably won't have the guts to play on the scale of Reginal Lewis right out the box, his story really does shows you how with confidence, determination, and strategic thinking, you can create success for yourself on any level.  His story is a real-life page turner that we doubt you'll be able to put down once you start.

    • The Magic of Thinking Big
      by David J. Schwartz

      Sometimes getting your head right makes all the difference.  Those who succeed aren't necessarily the smartest, the strongest, or the most handsome or beautiful.  It's all about heart and perspective. Every accomplishment begins with one step.   Focus your effort.  Take your first step.  Make your move.

       
    • The 48 Laws of Power
      by Robert Greene

      There are so many experiences in life that are referred to as an unwritten rule.  Well this book defines these unwritten rules as Laws of Power, clearly explains them, and ties them to historical events. Some of these historical recounts will leave indelible memories that you will carry with you as a back pocket resource.  A cynical person might want to rename this as the The Politician's Handbook.  It is without doubt one of the best summaries pointing out the nuances of human nature and can help you play life like a chess grandmaster. The book shows you that everyone has Power.  It's just up to you on whether you want to give it away, maintain it, or grow it.

       
    • Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community? (King Legacy)
      by Martin Luther King

      So much about Dr. King has portrayed him simply as a man of peace and non-violence.  He wrote this last book not long before his death. It demonstrates his strategic thinking and discusses how is next objective was to organize to wield collective economic might.  While King is known as a man of peace and great orator, his writing in this book clearly shows his very high intellect.
